Forget the Lights, Hit the Slopes: Metallica Make Skis Now
Having already conquered (or, in some cases, “conquered”) music, movies, music festivals, and, uh, the board game Monopoly, Metallica are now teaming up with a company called Armada to manufacture a line of skis. According to the band’s website…
“Available to dealers now and at retail in September of this year, the Armada x Metallica collaboration consists of two skis, the Invictus 95Ti all mountain ski and the JJ 2.0 powder ski. There will also be a Hans windbreaker jacket and Decker Gloves, all with Metallica Master of Puppets based artwork created by Armada’s graphics team with creative input from us.”
The skis are available now for pre-order for $400 or $375, depending on which model you purchase. Knowing very little about skiing, I took to the interwebs to see if that was an insanely high cost for skis, since putting a band’s logo on a product often increases the price; but $400 actually appears to be reasonable (which is to say, there are cheaper skis out there, but there are also skis which are far more expensive). But are these good skis, or crappy ones that just have Metallica-themed art on them? Like I said, I know very little about skiing, so I have no idea.
But if YOU have some idea and you want to buy these puppies, you can do so here. Sorry to break your heart, but the gloves and jacket aren’t available yet.
